Canova and her uncle (Summerville) live on a farm. Trouble is the farm is located on New York City's Fifth Avenue. Walburn and Foy play a pair of city slickers who try to get the country kin to sell out but it's nothing doing. They try to trick the hillbilly girl by pretending to give her

a spot on the radio. But through a mistake she goes on the air, sings her heart out and naturally is a big hit. Utter cornball, this suffers not only from a dumb idea but also from poor comic timing. The director has no idea of what is going on and consequently this dies quickly. Canova, who

always seemed to get parts like this, is the best of the lot. Canova sings: "Hey Junior," "You're Telling I," "Manhattan Holiday," and "Puddin' Head" (all by Eddie Cherkose, Sol Meyer, Jule Styne).
